San Francisco, CA, USA/Berlin, Germany - 6 January 2011 - Neonga announces that Bjoern Koschin has joined the company’s management board as Chief Administrative Officer.
In 1999, Bjoern founded a technology company together with two partners which focused mainly on the administration and optimizing of Linux networks. In 2000, the entire staff of this company was incorporated by gamigo AG where Bjoern Koschin was part of the administrative team. In 2006, he founded the MMOG publisher Yusho GmbH together with, amongst others, Benjamin Kaiser who is Neonga’s current CTO, where he focused on the improvement of the billing system. In July 2008, Yusho merged with OnlineWelten GmbH and changed its company name into Frogster Online Gaming GmbH, publisher of Bounty Bay Online and the globally successful free-to-play MMORPG Runes of Magic.
In September 2010, Bjoern left Frogster voluntarily and has now joined the Neonga management after a short sabbatical. As the Chief Administrative Officer, he now adds his expertise into the startup which was founded last year and which has recently raised a series A funding of 2.8 M USD. He is responsible for Human Resources, Business Administration, Accounting and Billing Solutions at Neonga.
”Bjoern was our first choice to fulfill the duties of the Chief Administrative Officer at Neonga. With his wide and extraordinary experience, he fits perfectly into our management team and will make sure that we have the administrative backbone ready for a successful and growing company in the Online Gaming business!” says Rolf Kloeppel, Chief Executive Officer at Neonga AG.

It is very exciting to be in a position to support and influence the future success of this innovative Online Games publisher already during its first steps.
